The Gallery Restaurant at The Swan at Lavenham

High Street, Lavenham, CO10 9QA

from £22.50 pp

Whether a Traditional, Savoury or a decadent High Tea (our personal favourite), you’ll be able to sit down and enjoy a range of classic pastries, finger sandwiches, savouries and cakes, all within the splendour of our Gallery Restaurant. This summer we’re also livening up Wednesdays with a series of Musical Afternoon Teas.

We also cater to coeliac diets, offering gluten- and dairy-free options. If you have special dietary needs, please let us know when booking so we can prepare a special menu for you in advance.

Each of our afternoon teas are traditionally served stage-by-stage with sandwiches or main dishes first, followed by delicious scones and cakes and can be paired with a bottle of Champagne should you wish to celebrate. All are presented on fine Royal Worcester Crockery specifically created for The Swan by Walpole of Stoke-on-Trent, whose prestigious special commissions are found in many of Britain’s Royal palaces – the perfect crockery then upon which to savour our delicious treats.

While Champagne adds an opulent touch, for the traditionalists our range of over 20 specialist Newby teas will ensure there is a brew to suit all tastes. If you’d like some advice, then one of our specialist tea sommeliers will be happy to recommend the ideal blend for you.
